Ontario Autumn Fields

I spent a grey day in Ontario driving around the area that I had briefly lived in, when I was in my teens. As I drove back towards Galetta, I suddenly saw these bright sumac leaves and the red bushes behind, nicely framing the pale, newly harvested fields. I reversed the car back up the road to be able to photograph it.

I drove around to try to take the photograph when the sky was not quite so dull, but I never found the spot again. I wish the countryside still looked like this… but it will be pretty with all the snow soon, no doubt.

I might not be making many submissions for a while as I go for eye surgery on Monday, but I didn't want to miss the #farmfriday  posting today. +Farm Friday is, of course curated by +Steven Kennard and +Sofie Løve Forsberg and myself +Ellie Kennard.

  1. Thank you! Come on in +Rosann Clements – the `water`s`lovely! Why not think of joining a daily photo project like this one +G+ 365 Project  : https://plus.google.com/u/0/100592274381408887512/about
    That really got me started in taking my photography seriously. 
    And watch for the posts by the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers and make sure you try to sign up for mentorships as they are announced (hint: read carefully to see what the criteria are, so you can start to fit into them, well in advance of the announcements….)
    Have fun!
